Title
(EN) ANIMAL FAT ASSESSMENT
(FR) EVALUATION DE LA TENEUR EN GRAISSE D'UN ANIMAL
Abstract
(EN)
The assessment of the fat content of an animal by a surface profile capture means (11, 20) which includes a line of retractable locator probes (12) or other locator means to provide data of the profile of the animal which can be analysed by an analysing means (31) to derive a parameter of the profile of the animal, such as the length of the profile between two known spaced planes, which is indicative of a degree of fatness or leanness of the animal.
(FR)
On décrit l'évaluation de la teneur en graisse d'un animal au moyen d'un dispositif d'acquisition d'un profil de surface (11, 20) qui comprend une ligne de sondes de localisation rétractables (12) ou un autre dispositif de localisation, destiné à fournir des données sur le profil de cet animal. Ces données peuvent être analysées au moyen d'un dispositif d'analyse (31) qui donne un paramètre du profil de l'animal, tel que la longueur de ce profil entre deux plans espacés connu, ce qui indique l'engraissement ou la maigreur de l'animal.
